From the Author
Background to the novel
The Angel Gateway was conceived of long before I wrote my first novel, The Greenway, and I originally expected it to be simply an historical novel. The central character of Kitty Hallam was one I visualised strongly right from the outset. I knew, Kitty's history and some of what would happen to her but had no idea of how to put this into a book. It needed something else and early in my writing career I certainly would not have had the confidence to weave two storylines together as eventually happened in The Angel Gateway. So, it was put on hold and several years passed before I even re-read the original research notes that I had made. Then, the second storline began to emerge as Ray Flowers began to creep into my consciousness - actually, he's too big to creep and emerged with something of a large thump - and I knew I had my other character. Kitty had someone in the present day over whome she could have influence. Linking them took a little longer, a simple haunting didn't seem to be enough and then it occurred to me, what would happen if Ray began to haunt Kitty in her own time just as she affected him in his? The Angel Gateway itself is a location in Leicester, a little alleyway runnng between Gallowtree Gate and the market place and I always wondered how it got its name..
